(A few facts were taken from the summary of Obits in Worland newspaper for 2003)



            Georgia Rose Arnold was born to Leroy and Minnie Sharp Garoutte in Absorokee, Montana on the 17th day of September in 1915.  The couple lived in Nye, Stillwater, MT and Georgia had 6 siblings:  Beatrice, William, James, Lawrence, Leath and Robert.  [U.S. census 1920].  She married  William (Bill) Arnold, son of Alva Bert and Mabel Arnold (bef 1940).  The couple spent some of their married life in Ten Sleep, but by 1940 she showed on a U.S. city directory in Basin, WY.  As per the Social Security death record, she passed away in Basin, Big Horn Co. Wyoming on the 24 Apr 2003 at the age of 87.  The couple had no children.  It appears that she lived nearly 63 years or more in the Big Horn Basin.  Her husband Bill Arnold also died in the year 2003



Memories:  Georgia Rose was tiny and quick moving and worked sometimes at her brother William (Bill) Garoutte’s garage in Ten Sleep.  She was a private person and mainly kept to herself. Her brother had been md to Thelma Hawks for a short time and I believe she kept in touch with Thelma as they were both born in Stillwater, MT.  fb
